Privacy Accent Door Leverset with the Decorative Addison Rose
Schlage makes a quality product. Most competitors make these door handles with a twist dial lock to lock the door lever. This handleset by Schlage is a push button lock that you can easily set with your thumb from only one hand even while holding the lever! I ordered this lever set in BLACK finish (wife's choice), in the Decorative Addison Rose style (also wife's choice). I was expecting a possible chip, scratch, or blemish in the finish because it is common and very noticeable against black - especially on metal. However the finish was flawless! The installation was easy, it feels solid and the movement is smooth and precise. Very happy. I will order more.

These handles are so beautiful. We replaced all interior door handles in our house. They were easy to install and work great, very smooth. I like the added security of the small key to open the door from the hall if a child accidentally locks themself into a bathroom. The handles are reversible. We have several doors opening in one direction and sever other doors opening from another direction. The levers can be take apart easily and switched around to face the correct direction without messing up the locking apparatus. Love them.

Not really reversible
This stuff is good quality. However, buyers should note that these locks are not really reversible. For example, we have double doors to our master bedroom. As you face these doors from the hallway, the privacy lock is on the right and a dummy on the left. Thus, if you use this particular lock on the right, as we did, and you still want to have the lock button inside the room, you must turn the lever upside down. While it looks fine that way, keep in mind that you then cannot use a left-door dummy because it will be right-side-up. I made this mistake and had to return the left-door dummy. Instead, you have to install a right-door dummy on the left door but turn it upside down so that it will have a mirror-image appearance compared to the lock on the right. It would be helpful if Schlage and build.com could explain this in their descriptions of this hardware.
